    This could be the reason that it was against the law and still is for a man to ride in a sheep car. Ya could git a few of those unidentifiable cross-breeds.

    Bavaria, it is the butcher located at the StOPNGO shopping center at the first entrance to Santo Domingo on Carretera Masaya, Managua. About KM 6.5 after the Galeria shopping center. New Zealand Lamb.

    And the name of the carniceria is Bavaria? Does the owner wear lederhosen, and sell weisswurst, bratwurst, bierwurst, schinkenwurst, and other German goodies??

    There are hair sheep here (someone gave the local name earlier) and people claim, falsely, that they're crosses between sheep and goats. Jinocuba restaurant in Jinotega seems to have a source for it -- and I suspect that just driving around looking for something that looks like a cross between a goat and a sheep would find sources. Blackbellied Barbados are one of the better known breeds of hair sheep; you should be able to find images of that on line.

    You may have to buy a whole lamb (which should be around 35 pounds dressed, a top of refrigerator freezer full).

    Goat is quite a good substitute and perhaps more available depending on where you are. Neither seems to show up in local supermarkets.

    A lamb is just a baby or young sheep.
    A lamb is a sheep that is 12 months old or less. The term lamb is most commonly used to describe the lamb's meat. ie Lamb Chops. When a sheep that is 12 month old or more is served it is called Mutton. ie Mutton Chops.

    That's a Cabro (the one that stinks). A young Pelibuey is great eating. I have cooked them whole in a caja china and they taste excellent. I even cooked an older male one time, about 4 years old. The meat wasn't as tender, but it wasn't gammy at all. Marinated it overnight with Garlic, basil and Sour Orange.

    @Rivense67 & FisherCigarman (and other native speakers)

    So in Nicaragua, is it . . .
    Pelibuey = carne de Pelibuey??
    mutton (full grown sheep) = carne de carnero o carne de oveja ??
    lamb (young sheep) = carne de cordero ??

    and for

    veal (calf milk-fed & <3 mos old) = carne de ternera ??

    The above translations are from my Merriam-Webster Spanish-English Dictionary, but may well be different in Nicaragua. For example, chicken gizzards, mollejas (spelled in Spanglish moyejas at my local Supermercado Flor de Jalisco!) are titiles in Nicaragua!

    The name is Bavaria.They dont wear the apparel but charge for lamb like it was like it was imported from Baden-Baden. They also sell bratwust and some German beer as well. The prices are higher than most places but fresh sausages and high quality meats including some Argentinian cuts.
